Fallout: New Vegas will be a day one purchase for me. I really hope there's a cool special edition like Fallout 3. I still love my bobblehead and lunch box.
do you have any followers (like

)? they make it a bit more easy to work through the complex.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I had that follower, but after I rescued him, I never ran into him again. I'm not sure my character is in a position to get any more followers. I managed to finish the expansion last night. What a blast! Started Mothership Zeta. Not impressed so far...

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

Are we allowed to say "orgasm" here? Because I just had one.



Your first look at the Fallout: New Vegas Collector’s Edition

Quote:
Originally Posted by Bethesda
The Top Men working on the Fallout: New Vegas Collector’s Edition have been hard at work on a pack that will trump your expectations, and today we can finally share the first details with you guys.

As you can tell from the above image, every extra has been crafted to resemble items from the world of New Vegas, from the distressed deluxe box to the poker chip recreations. On top of that, this stuff won’t just look great on your shelf — it’s also surprisingly functional.

The Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the CE will all include the following:

♠ Seven “Lucky 7” poker chips, each designed to represent chips from the major casinos found on the New Vegas strip and throughout the Mojave Wasteland.

♠ A fully customized Fallout: New Vegas deck of cards. Each card in the pack has been uniquely illustrated to depict characters and factions found within the game. Use the cards to play poker, blackjack or Caravan, an original card game that was created by Obsidian especially for New Vegas.

♠ A recreation of the game’s highly coveted “Lucky 38” platinum chip.

♠ A hardcover graphic novel “All Roads” that tells the story of some of the characters and events that lead up to Fallout: New Vegas. “All Roads” was written by Chris Avellone, the game’s creative director, and created in conjunction with Dark Horse Comics.

♠ ‘The Making of Fallout: New Vegas’ DVD. This documentary DVD will contain exclusive video content, including interviews with the developers in which they take you from concept to creation and discuss topics such as story, setting, legacy of the Fallout franchise and more.

North Americans can pre-order at any participating retailer — like GameStop — starting today. European pre-orders will be available throughout Europe in the weeks to come.

When I saw the picture I thought the deck of cards was a "Cat's Paw" magazine. I was wrong. Cool looking package, though.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

at 79.99 it is a good deal for a collectors edition, but I know amazon will end up offering a 10 or 20 credit, or a price closer to 49.99 for the regular version, and nothing on the collectors edition, which will make it a 25-30 dollar difference.... so I have to ask myself will I pay 30 dollars for a deck of cards, 8 poker chips a making of dvd and a comic? For the most part the comics in these things are worth 2 bucks at best, I have never found a making of dvd to be worth any more that a dollar or two, and the cards and chips are maybe worth 10 bucks...so I am out..

Although I'm hoping Amazon has its own special edition for like $120 like last time.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

If it had included a soundtrack, I would have been all over the collector's edition. Without it though, I will just get the regular or wait for all the DLC to be included on the future GOTY edition.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I'll be buying this set on day one.

Eventually, I'll sell the game (keeping all the fun stuff), and pick up the GOTY edition. That's what I did for Fallout 3, and it worked out quite well.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I'll be buying it as well. For $80, it's a no brainer. That's only an extra $15-$20 and there's no guarantee Amazon will offer a gift card for only the regular edition.

I bought the lunch box edition last time, and I look forward to adding this to my collection.

There is no guarantee true, but I also don't feel the rush to preorder this now....if amazon offers a good deal on the regular version that is the one I get...if no one has a special deal on the regular as far as price, I will probably end up getting this...

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

They diluted the market so much last time with the lunchbox that I am more than happy to wait 5 or 6 months to get this for 20 or 30 bucks.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

Retailer pre-order specials:

The Classic Pack, available when you pre-order through GameStop, contains:
· Armored Vault 13 Suit - Extensively patched up and dotted with piecemeal armor, this outfit is an homage to the classic ending of the original Fallout.
· Vault 13 Canteen - This handy device is useful for staving off dehydration and providing a small amount of healing in the Mojave Wasteland.
· Weathered 10mm Pistol - A well-worn 10mm pistol that packs an extra punch despite its modest size.
· 5 Stimpaks - Food and water are good for long-term healing, but when the fighting is fierce, Stimpaks help keep Wastelanders upright.

The Tribal Pack, available when you pre-order through Amazon, contains:
· Tribal Raiding Armor - Pieced together from scraps of armor, this outfit provides protection without impacting mobility.
· Broad Machete - This heavy-bladed melee weapon does high damage against limbs and can quickly deal out a flurry of attacks.
· 5 Bleak Venom doses - Useful on any Melee Weapon, Bleak Venom makes short of work of most living targets.
· 10 Throwing Spears - If you would like to silently pin an enemy's head to a wall, Throwing Spears are the way to do it.

The Caravan Pack, available when you pre-order through Steam and Walmart, contains:
· Lightweight Leather Armor - This hand-modified suit of leather armor reduces its overall weight without impacting its ability to protect.
· Sturdy Caravan Shotgun - Despite its rough appearance, this Caravan Shotgun will reliably fire 20 gauge shells until the Brahmin come home.
· 4 Repair Kits - Useful for repairing any outfit or weapon, Repair Kits are a valuable tool for any caravaner.
· Binoculars – The Mojave Wasteland is a dangerous place, but with these trusty Binoculars you’ll be able to spot trouble coming.

The Mercenary Pack, available when you pre-order through Best Buy, contains:
· Lightweight Metal Armor - Modified for long-range travel, this Metal Armor sacrifices some protection for mobility and overall weight.
· Mercenary’s Grenade Rifle - Though similar to other 40mm Grenade Rifles in the Mojave Wasteland, this model has a faster reload cycle.
· 3 Super Stimpaks - When you absolutely, positively, need to keep your blood inside your body, Super Stimpaks fix you up in no time.
· 3 Doctors Bags - Mercenaries and broken limbs go together like Iguana-on-a-Stick and Nuka Cola. Thankfully, these Doctors Bags take a bit of sting out of the inevitable crushed skull.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

I'm trying to work up some enthusiasm for this game, but it just looks like more of the same. After spending 80+ hours in the last Fallout game, this one doesn't look all that appealing.

Re: Fallout New Vegas Announced

Has it been known yet if we can import our Fallout 3 character? I suppose we're starting from scratch again.

Really? That's exactly why I'm stoked for it, more of the same.

Starting from scratch. It's a completely different character with an entirely different background.
